  2. Pre-approval is essential. We will  not guarantee any retrospective payment. That you have gone ahead and incurred expenses before approval is granted will not be a factor in our decision, and you will have to accept the risk that you may not be reimbursed.


  1. Try to keep requests for international travel below R30k, and for local travel below R10k.
